United Nation Biodiversity Conference (COP15) – Part 2
April 25 @ 8:00 AM – May 8 @ 5:00 PM
The fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will review the achievement and delivery of the CBD’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.
Originally scheduled to take place from 11 to 24 October 2021, the United Nations Biodiversity Conference, otherwise known as COP15, has now been divided into two parts.
The first part helped to set the stage for the next meeting in Spring 2022, with the adoption of the Kunming Declaration, which calls on countries to negotiate and agree on the establishment of the Kunming Biodiversity Fund.
The second part will include an in-person meeting in Kunming, China from 25th April to 8th May 2022. This meeting will “mark a major moment for global biodiversity with the adoption of the framework that will redefine our relationship with the natural environment”. It will include 21 targets and 10 milestones to be achieved by 2030, with net improvement by 2050 – including the conservation and protection of at least 30% of the planet’s land and ocean.
